Inn-Yang is an international artist born in Singapore and living and working in Switzerland. As a performer, painter and kinetic artist, Inn-Yang is multifaceted, using various art forms to embody his ideas.
He learned from a young age to catch the movement of animals, from his grandfather, a traditional Chinese doctor. He entered in 1964 the Academy of Arts Nan Yang Mai Chong in Singapore, and studied traditional Chinese art, calligraphy and oil painting. After his studies in Asia he moved to California and Florida to teach in an art school, and began to build his reputation by making monumental installations. He is now the overseas director of EPAC, the first school of comic and game art in Switzerland.
For Inn-Yang, the dragon performances embody the essence of his conception of movement. By the blast of his wide circular uninterrupted gestures, he animates the mythological energy of the dragon. In his recent works, he uses the technique of the cracked acrylic lacquer. Indeed by applying layers of lacquer that overlap and crackle, he gives the works an original finish. Inspired by the technique of glaze and Asian lacquer, he uses the ancestral techniques and gives them a personal and contemporary interpretation.
